Swimming with sharks: is it ever safe? - Telegraph
Balanced article, concluding with the hookline: "In their element, they [sharks] are our superiors - and that is precisely why we are excited to see them." Not for me, personally. It wouldn't be an extraordinary thing to do if there weren't real dangers, no matter how unlikely. It would seem those who've experienced it both play down the risks and talk up the thrill of the danger simultaneously.
